A solid American porter, it is rich, but not overly robust, this brewery has some potential.

rosenbergh (10204) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2013
12 oz bottle. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Looks like a glass of Coke. Mild bready malty aroma with dark bread and mild hops. Sweet malty flavour with mild roastiness, some bread and some sweetness. Sweetness makes this a bit unpleasant.

drowland (7876) - Georgia, USA - JAN 25, 2016
12/24/15. 12oz bottle while in IL for Christmas. I kept thinking the box said "Candy Dancer" and that it was going to be a peppermint porter or something, but itís not. Which is fine by me. Almost black pour under a small tan head. Roasted malt aromas, coffee, dark chocolate, some fruitiness, light acidity. Smooth flavor, a touch light, hint of coffee and chocolate, caramel, cream. Not bad.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, garnet-tinted cola brown with a short, sticky beige head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla over roasted black and coffee malts.. touches of licorice too.. well-presented. The flavor found well-roasted chocolate, coffee, and licorice notes at the core.. vanilla and charred roast laced throughout.. finished dry and roasty, with a hit of acidity. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, with moderate carbonation.. good balance throughout. This was surprisingly good.

Strykzone (6633) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Woodmans in Beloit. This beer is almost completely black with just a little red. A one finger tan head and a good amount of carbonation floating up to meet it. The aroma is roasted but also some sweeter vinous notes, too. Less roasted notes in the flavor. In the background are bitter citrus hops and they add some brightness. A little vanilla and cocoa. This is quite nice and has a smooth feel.

nuplastikk (5742) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Draft at Old Fashioned. Opaque blac, nice off white head. Roasty chocolate aroma. A touch of a watery mouthfeel, but the hits the mark stylistically. Mossy, with some borderline Stout nuances. A little thin bodywise, relies a little heavily on the specialty malt. Drinkable, but still sub par and unimpressive. Mild chocolate bitterness in the aftertaste.

wlajwl (5677) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Aroma is dark/roasted malts, coffee and mild toffee. The flavor is roasted malts, toffee, chocolate, mild dark fruit and a mix of acidity and tart in the finish.

JPDIPSO (5587) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Mahogany color with a taller light tan head. Aromas of toasted to roasted malt and hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Dry flavors with some roasted malt and hints of ash. I get the roasted malt just need a bit more pale ale to mix and give this one some added depth. 5/12
